Christmas' Favorite Cookie: Peanut Butter Blossom Recipe

As soon as you say the words 'peanut butter blossoms' in the McInerney household you better get ready for the stampede coming your way. This is, without a doubt, my family's favorite Christmas cookie. My mom has been baking them for years and passed down the same tradition to my sisters and me. When I decided I was going to do some baking and put together Christmas cookie care packages for my friends and family I knew this cookie had to make the list. And as soon as my mom and sisters knew I was making them, they sent in their requests for tins of cookies to be sent to their addresses.

If you love chocolate and you love peanut butter, but haven't tried these cookies you have been missing out my friends. However, today is your lucky day because I've got all of the details for getting this cookie from a bunch of ingredients and into your belly. It's an incredibly easy to follow recipe that yields the most amazing results. Check out the recipe below! And don't forget to leave a few for Santa!

1/2 cup of butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
2 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 bag of unwrapped Hershey's Kisses
1/4 cup extra sugar, for rolling

1. Preheat oven to 375 and unwrap Hershey's Kisses
2. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT for Hershey's Kisses and the extra 1/4 cup sugar.
3. Scoop out small size amounts of cookie dough and roll into balls.
4. Roll and cover each cookie dough ball through a bowl of the extra sugar you set aside.
5. Place cookies on baking sheet about 1 inch apart from each other.
6. Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on your oven. It's incredibly important that you do not over bake these. I baked mine for exactly 9 minutes.
7. Immediately upon removing the cookies from the oven, gently press the Hershey's Kisses into the center of each cookie. The chocolate will melt a little bit when you do this, but will firm back up once the cookie has had a chance to cool.
